Angels

For some reason, I never took the idea of angels, or guardian angels, seriously. Recently, however, I came across the following words spoken by Christ within the context of discussing the connection between God and children:

“See that you do not look down on these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.” Matthew 18:10 NIV

 As a father to a four year old little girl (with a baby boy due in October) this verse is extremely comforting to me. I often find myself worrying about the dark circumstances of the future world that they will be living in. However, Jesus has guided the willing for far longer than I can comprehend and he will be faithful to guide my kids, too.
